Started in August 1991, arXiv.org is the premier electronic archive and preprint distribution server for research material in physics and astronomy. Significant material from mathematics, computer science, nonlinear sciences, quantitative biology, and statistics is also included.. Searching can be done by title, abstract, authors, keywords across the entire record, and a number of other fields. There is also an experimental full-text search of the entire document text.
Users can retrieve papers from arXiv via the web interface. Registered authors may use our web interface to submit their articles to arXiv. Authors can also update their submissions if they choose, though previous versions remain available.
Listings of newly submitted articles in areas of interest are available via the web interface, via RSS feeds , and by subscription to automatic email alerts . arXiv is maintained and operated by the Cornell University Library with guidance from the arXiv Advisory Board and the help of numerous subject moderators.
1991 to present.
